Okay, I've done a search on these and didn't find much. I think it's because of the Search Feature on the forums. In my experince, the search features have never had a good success rate when searching with phpBB, VB, YABB, Etc.. I'm looking for a picture of what a standard monolithic capacitors looks like that may contain PM's or a link to a thread or article that may explain the info. Now I'm aware of the ones that look like a "Advil Pill" with the wires coming out, but there are small black and silver one's that I'm unsure of. I been breaking up old PC's for awhile and I'm throwing away everything that is not obvious gold colored. I'm wanting to make sure I'm not throwing out anything else that may have PM's that I'm not aware of. The exception to this is I am taking the medium and large flatpacks.
Here is what I've been collecting in general:
* Gold fingers from cards and bridge boards
* Many many gold prongs used for IDE connections.
* Pulling IDE cable Pins out of cable holsters
* Flat Packs
* Any memory sticks with gold under the solder layer. I use a dremel tool to remove solder layers.
Anyone have any ideas if I'm may be missing something in collections? I was thinking of buying Steve's CD if he still has it for sale. I haven't got into chemicals yet. Just stocking up until I have the proper knowledge to do the refining.
